9/11: We Remember
Mudpie: Mommy, why does everybody seem so sad today?
Melissa: Sweetie, you weren't born yet, but 14 years ago today 19 terrorists hijacked 4 planes and killed nearly 3,000 innocent people.
Mudpie: Why did they do that???
Melissa: Sadly, there are truly evil people out there who despise our wonderful country and everything we stand for. They are mass murderers who need to be rooted out and destroyed.
Mudpie: Mommy, were any kitties killed?
Melissa: I don't think so, but many kitties lost their Mommy or Daddy that day. They left for work and never made it home.
Mudpie: It's not going to happen again, is it?
Melissa: Absolutely it could, especially if we allow ourselves to forget the lessons we learned on that awful day.
Mudpie: Can we do anything else?
Melissa: We can pray for peace, and also thank God for all of the brave men and women who wear our country's uniform and risk their lives everyday to defend our freedom and keep us safe.
Mudpie: You'll keep me safe too, right Mommy?
Melissa: I will always keep you safe, precious.
